I've been traveling a lot the last few weeks, holidaying in Cebu (where I learned how to scuba dive, which was fabulous) and Hong Kong, and I'm off to Indonesia next week. My church also released a new EP, which I'll blog about shortly. And more blogs to come about my travels. For now, though, I made an instructional video of how to play the song 'Breathe Deep', which is a jazzy tune on my first full length album of the same name. The catalyst for this video was a friend in Norway who wanted to learn it, which made me realize that all I had to show people how to play it was a rough chord chart. I play most things by ear, and I don't always know what the names of the chords are that I come up with for my songs, so for those who are not as ear-oriented I thought this video would be helpful. Check it out below.
A couple weekends ago I went to Phuket, Thailand with some friends. We found a really great deal and just decided to go for it. Initially it was just four, but then two friends wanted to come, and two more, so we ended up being eight. We got there on a Friday night and took a taxi to Kata beach, and the following day wandered around Phuket, checking out the viewpoint, having seafood, swimming in the ocean. The second day we took the ferry to Phi Phi island and did some snorkeling in a couple places. Here's a view from the shore of Maya Bay, which was rather crowded.
